What Is Setsubun & Event Info

Japanese Holiday

For those unfamiliar, Setsubun is a Japanese Holiday celebrated in early February where people throw beans at others wearing masks of "oni" (ogre-like creatures). This is said to chase evil spirits away, and bring in good ones.

No Plans For Special Event

Setsubun DayFebruary 2nd

In real life, Setsubun will take place on February 2nd this year. However, there won't be any special event for this in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. You won't be receiving special DIY recipes or other rewards.

No Special Villager Conversations

Even when we spoke to villagers on the day of the holiday, we weren't able to spot any special dialogue lines that referenced Setsubun.

Items & Clothing Sold

There won't be any special event, but there are in fact certain Setsubun related items for you to get. You can get these from Nook Shopping.
